Slow and steady? Does it win the race?

Sunday, February 10, 2013

Slow. Weight comes off so darn slow. My husband lost 14 pounds in the first 2 weeks. I lost 5. I wanted to strangle him when he said "you must not be as strict as me." Well geeez. the boy was eating less than 1000 calories a day. But then he stopped. He lost no more despite eating a ridiculously small amount of food each day. We had a couple larger meals and he lost it. I don't think he's lost any more in the last 3 weeks. I however am now up to 8 pounds lost. My clothes feel better. I eat more reasonable amounts of food now too. 1400 to 1600 calories. I can not function as a nice person on less than that.

    This is not a competition between you and him. You're there for mutual support. While he had an early advantage, you're slow and steady. Be strong, don't let him get down for no more scale movement..
You'll both get there.

    Men have faster metabolism than we do - plus I swear estrogen makes our bodies hold onto fat cells. Just the way it is.

Slow works. It'll happen, just don't listen to you DH!

We just have to keep working toward our goal! One pound at a time!

  Hey, remember the tortoise and the hare! Ha! I am a tortoise and I am going to be a winner. Sounds like you are determined to do likewise. Hang in there! Don't slack! Keep pushing!
Isn't it wonderful to have baggy clothes for a change; today I wore some for the LAST time. Ha!
